U.S. government using Pre-Crime technology to monitor citizens

• The Real News Now
Law enforcement agencies have finally gone sci-fi. A new software developed by University of Pennsylvania professor Richard Berk (Pre-crime) uses algorithms and historical data to predict future crimes before they occur. Agencies in Philadelphia and Baltimore have used a similar software in the past to predict murder risks by past offenders, but the Pre-Crime upgrade allows agencies a more detailed look into the future.

U.S. Government using data mining technology to build dossiers on U.S. Citizens that haven’t committed crimes or because they might break the law is just a step up from dossiers the Nazi government employed, to establish a basis to target German Citizens without probable cause. Subsequently the East German police, Stasi followed in the Nazi footsteps developing so many files that if lined up back to back they would extend 12-miles. The only difference now, is that U.S. Government is claiming the dossiers they intend to keep on Americans will help them predict crimes in the future.

The FBI recently asked for the power to obtain without warrants, Citizens’ “electronic communication transactional records” including email addresses they used to send communications. If the FBI’s request for warrant-less Internet surveillance is granted, Citizens to avoid federal conspiracy charges will have to report to police (every email) they received that might allude to anything illegal. That is what happened in East Germany, Citizens to be safe had to report everything suspicious they encountered, turning ordinary Citizens into snitches. Consequently Citizens were afraid to voice an opinion.

FBI’s request for no warrant Internet surveillance can’t be viewed separately: because if pending bills in Congress pass, the FBI can then use warrant-less Internet surveillance to arrest and indefinitely detain Americans on mere suspicion not evidence, based on their Internet Activity e.g. emails. Private information the FBI derives from warrant-less searches of emails and Internet Activity—could potentially be used by U.S. Government to target anyone through government harassment, blackmail, prosecution or civil asset forfeiture because he or she questioned or politically opposed the government. The FBI can now use and abuse (NLS) National Security Letters using the letters to target’s someone’s clients creating fear, driving off their customers and business associations, making it impossible for someone to make a living.

It is problematic lawful Internet Activity will be used by U.S. Government to detain/arrest Americans without probable cause? On March 4, 2010, Sen. McCain introduced The “Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010.” McCain’s bill would eliminate several Constitutional protections allowing Government to arbitrarily pick up Americans on mere suspicion—with no probable cause. Under McCain’s bill, your political opinions and statements made on web postings and in emails against U.S. Government and others could be used by authorities to deem you a “hostile” “Enemy Belligerent” to cause your arrest and indefinite detention. U.S. activists and individuals under McCain’s bill would be extremely vulnerable to detention or prosecution, if (charged with mere suspicion) of “intentionally or materially providing support to hostilities or an Act of Terrorism”, for example American activists can’t control what other activists might do illegally—they network by email or phone domestically and overseas. U.S. Government under McCain’s bill would need only allege an individual kept in military detention, is an Unprivileged Enemy Belligerent, suspected of; having engaged in supporting hostilities against the United States; its coalition partners; or Civilians to indefinitely detained Americans without legal counsel.

Alarmingly the Obama Government recently employed a vendor to search Internet social networking sites to collect information about Americans that could potentially be used by a U.S. Government Administration to injure Americans, for example, if you apply for a federal job, your name might be crossed referenced by the Obama Government with comments you made at Websites via your computer against government officials/policies or if you apply at a bank for a loan the Government has control since the financial crisis, could your Internet comment(s) prevent you getting that loan? Government monitoring of  Internet activity and websites too easily can be used by Government agencies to intimidate, coerce and extort Citizens and Corporations.

See McCain’s 12-page Senate bill S.3081 The “Enemy Belligerent Interrogation, Detention, and Prosecution Act of 2010 at: assets.theatlantic.com/static/mt/assets/politics/ARM10090.pdf  

Obama gave a speech in May 2010 that asked Congress to pass legislation to give the President power, to detain any person in the U.S. that government deems a “combatant” or likely to engage in a violent act in the future. President Obama wants the power to incarcerate U.S. Citizens not on evidence, but for what they might do. Obama wants the power to override the U.S. Constitution, to detain indefinitely any American based on conjecture her or she might do something violent in the future. If Obama’s proposal to detain Americans without probable cause is approved, and the FBI is also granted warrant-less searches of the Internet, it is foreseeable Government could use anyone’s Internet activity including emails to claim an individual or lawful organization might do something violent in the future to order their indefinite detainment.
